X400 missing & some other questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have few questions.

    I configured a SBS 2008 with exchange.

    I created users using Windows SBS console. Why can't I see those users in the AD?

    For testing I created a user in the AD, but why not it automatically create a mail box in exchange? (in Server 2003 standard I just need to create a AD user it will automatically create exchange as well).

    And also In the exchange console > Receipiant Configuration > mail boxes

    On properties of a created email box > Under Email addresses

    i can only see username@mydomain.com. Should there be usually another SMTP address like username@mydomain.local and also X400 something? What I am missing here?

    many Thanks

  • SBS creates the users in a special OU. You will not see the users in the normal Users.
    As this is SBS you should do all user creation through the management console.

    With Exchange 2007, user mailbox management is done through EMC. If you want to create users and mailbox in one hit, use the SBS management console. Otherwise you will need to use EMC, and then make additional mailboxes.

    X400 addresses will not appear in an SBS based environment. You wouldn't always see an email address for the local domain if the server was setup with the wizards. Depends if the domain has been added to the Accepted Domain and EMail Address Policy.

    Nothing unusual with your setup, it is just you aren't seeing what you are expecting based on knowledge of the 2003 era product.
